I went into BBW the other day to look at candles. I first heard of them when I bought $3 prizes for my bridal shower last year. I’ve tried a few of their hand creams and I am allergic. My hands peel badly, I’ve tried their soaps as well. They have great products that I’d love to try, but I know I’ll have a reaction. Do they have any hypoallergenic creams at all? Has anyone else had this experience?

If you have sensitive skin, I would stay away from all of their products. They are cheaply made and filled with chemicals. Have you tried products from the Body Shop? They are much better 🙂

I am totally addicted to BBW

Nope, all have chemicals and heavy fragrance. I love The Body Shop body butter, but I think you’re likely to have the same problem. I’d go fragrance free and try something like Lubriderm.

I know a lot of people who have that reaction. The artifical dyes in the BBW stuff often do it for me, even though they have a great range of scents. My FI doesn’t like the chemical tang of the scents, either, so I switched away and haven’t missed it. If you’re really into scent, try stuff from Lush. I personally use lotion from EO (cedar and citrus) as well as Charity Pot from Lush, and I haven’t had any rashes or anything for a while.

@weightwatchers152: B&BW markets for their scents, not the quality of their skincare. It’s cheap stuff (although I use it all the time). All of their products contain a lot of alcohol, which is a no-no for sensitive skin.

Thanks ladies. I think I will just enjoy their candles and stay away from their creams, etc. I have a cream by Austrailian Gold (Hempz) that I can use on my hands that does not give me reactions.
